When your life is in turmoil, think of a waterfall. The water (your life) is flowing along normally at a steady pace when suddenly, there is a dip (event in your life or a problem) which results in the water going into a state of turmoil as it falls deeper and deeper with no sign of an end to the turmoil. Then the water hits the bottom and splashes into a larger state of turmoil (this is the peak before things start to get better) before gradually blending into calm stream again (normality).

When you smile, you are certainly transmitting a special signal to those who are in receipt and to others who observe your smile. This was a signal that I used quite often in various work that I did over the years and have even tested the theory that a smile is a more welcoming sign for people to approach than if you do not smile. Byron Pulsifer, Smiles Are Sunshine For All
Thank you for these quotes Ellesse. I know it has been quite a while since this was posted but I just stumbled across them and I thought all of these quotes were inspiring. Unfortunately, I did not get the time to read all of the comments today but I hope to change that soon. I would have several quotes to tell you but when I started to think of inspirational quotes I could only think of the one that has helped me through some difficult times in life. I don’t know if it is considered inspirational, but it was to me. In fact, it was so inspirational that my high school graduation present from my mother was a ring engraved with this quote:
Make sure that you flex your courage muscle daily. That way when you really need it for something really scary it will be highly developed through daily use. Doing something courageous each day means finding something that you’re fearful of and overcoming that fear to do the thing that you wanted to do. It doesn’t have to be a big thing at first, and you’ll want to start off with small things so that you build up your confidence in your ability to be courageous. As your confidence grows, you can take on bigger and bigger things.
Of course, there are times when it’s difficult to feel cheery or positive – life can be difficult. If you’re having trouble seeing the cup as half full instead of half empty, reading some positive quotes about life can help you snap out of your funk. Here are some inspirational life quotes to help you see the amazing potential that life has to offer.
“They had battled and bloodied one another, they had kept secrets, broken hearts, lied, betrayed, exiled, they had walked away, said goodbye and sworn it was forever, and somehow, every time, they had mended, they had forgiven, they had survived. Some mistakes could never be fixed - some, but not all. Some people can't be driven away, no matter how hard you try. Some friendships won't break.”

We all have the ability to change in a positive way, so according to this quote we all have power. If you ever feel powerless, remember this phrase and try to make a positive change in your life. The feeling of having no power may be a signal that you need to make a change. It’s best not to wallow in that feeling and have it become a habitual thing, always be striving to feel your best and listening to your emotions, as they are the key to guiding you through life. When you start making positive changes, see how powerful you feel.

12. When change happens, you have a choice for how you are going to respond. You can either lose your composure and react impetuously or use the event or situation as a learning opportunity to shift your mindset and respond appropriately. Begin to notice your responses when changes occur and do your best to choose a breakthrough over a breakdown. ― Susan C. Young
They say that some rules are made to be broken, and still others are made to be bent. She’s not saying that you should break the law, but our society has so many rules put in place that if you conform to them all you might have a bland and vanilla time here. Find out which rules are getting in the way of some good clean fun, and test the boundaries. Life isn’t about staying within the lines, it’s about doing what you want without getting in the way of others doing what they want.

If you have children, or if you have ever been a child, you know that friendships can be hard, and great friendships can be hard to find.  Learning to share your favorite toys, taking turns, and saying that you are sorry is all part of the process.  As we navigate our way through middle school, we learn more about being a good friend.  What it feels like to have a friend stick up for you in a crowd, to hold you a spot at the lunch table, and to tell you when you have something stuck in your braces.  Sometimes those first best friends are with you into adulthood, and sometimes our friends change as we grow and also change.  We all seek to find that real friend who will be with us through thick and thin.  She tells you when you can find a more flattering pair of jeans, help you find the courage to quit a job that you hate going to, and loves you enough to tell you when the boyfriend you are chasing after, is no good for you. How lucky we are if we have found a best friend.
